by Nick Lamping

by Russell Jordan

Entry #3: The Moment
by Mike Brienza
About the creator: Asked to provide two bullets on himself, Mike simply had this to say:
I am a freshman at Ohio University and have played soccer all my life. I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio and I’ll support the Columbus Crew and the USMNT till the day I die.
Fair enough Mike.
Entry #2: Anthology – USA vs. CONCACAF
by John Santos
About the creator: Entry #2 comes from John Santos, who participated with in the 2010 contest with “The United States of Golazo.” That video had some serious fire-it-up character.
I probably should have let John introduce this competition as he was the one who asked and requested a 2011 contest. His words?
Hopefully another one of these contests helps to raise a little more awareness about the Gold Cup. People tell us that it’s not important or glamorus the international soccer powers aren’t involved. I say lets all do what we can to at least try to make it the Gold Cup as important and glamorus as possible.
Well said John.
Entry #1: A Team Of Great Moments
by Jay Bell
About the creator: Entry #1 comes from TSG writer and now AP-published reporter Jay Bell. Jay’s an expert on MLS, but as you can see also on carving up some great USMNT moments and reconfiguring them.
It’s got TSG’s favorite goal celebration, Michael Bradley demanding to celebrate with all his teammates at the corner flag during the Slovenia game. Check it out.
